Important backyard safety steps for all seasons (BPT) - From building snowmen with the kids in winter to playing fetch with Fido in the spring, your backyard is the backdrop for fun activity all year long. That means safety should be top of mind during all seasons. Just as you take steps to protect your children inside your house, you must be cautious of the dangers outside as well. The first step to keeping your backyard safe is to assess your fence. Fences help protect children from danger, keeping toddlers out of swimming pools, hot tubs and ponds or keeping them in the yard, away from busy traffic or strangers. Fences can also help keep your own pets in your yard, and other animals out. They can reduce your liability by preventing injuries to uninvited guests on your property, or injury caused by escaped pets. "A good weekend winterizing project is making sure your fences and gates are functioning properly and are protected from rust, a destructive force that can render gate hardware useless or dangerous," says Jim Paterson, senior vice president of D&D Technologies, which manufactures gate latches and hinges made of ultra-strong engineering polymers. "In our research, we found that when homeowners consider their fencing needs, rusty metal gate hardware that no longer functions properly or becomes a threat to children was their top concern. Rust-free and

adjustable gate hardware is the simple solution." Seasonal weather, ground settling and other factors can cause a gate to become misaligned over time and not function properly. It's important to have gate hardware that can be easily adjusted to overcome this. TruClose self-closing, tension adjustable hinges are an ideal solution. Some

models are vertically and horizontally adjustable as well. Combined with D&D adjustable, locking gate latches will ensure your gate will always function properly. In addition to checking your fence and gate hardware, consider these backyard safety steps for your home: * Tighten and cover any protruding bolts on swing sets and do not

Ceiling revamps: Leave the popcorn to the movies (BPT) - Calling all DIY enthusiasts: Those popcorn ceilings have to go. They don't get much love from homeowners or homebuyers, and they can really bring down the overall look and feel of an otherwise attractive room. Popcorn ceilings haven't really represented stylish home design since disco was on the radio, though they've certainly lingered a little longer. Whether you're interested in a fresh look for your own family or updating your home before putting it on the market, upgrading from a popcorn ceiling is a great investment. As the largest uninterrupted space in any room, the ceiling gives you a golden opportunity to add interest or infuse your personality. Mark Clement, a general contractor and blogger on MyFixItUplife, regularly advises homeowners on the best ways to create the most value and appeal in their home. "Ceilings really do make a greater impact than people realize," he says. "The right choice can help a room soar - but you probably won't get that effect with a popcorn ceiling." "New ceilings are a great update, and with today's options, they're incredibly easy to install yourself," Clement says. "Stylish ceiling details really turn heads, and a new ceiling can

make a dark or uninviting room feel bigger and brighter." But, before you grab your scraper, Clement has a few words of caution about tackling popcorn ceiling removal as a DIY project. "To remove a popcorn ceiling, you have to really be committed to the task. You can certainly do it yourself, but be forewarned that it can create a gigantic mess. You'll want to consider all of your options carefully, from removing to simply covering it up, based on your time and budget. Patience is also a factor!" If you know you want to make a change, but you're not sure of the best way to move forward, here are a few key factors you need to consider when addressing your popcorn ceiling(s): Stains: You can't put lipstick on a pig. Water problems, cracks and other issues that leave blemishes on your ceiling can be incredibly frustrating, especially if you have a popcorn ceiling that makes it difficult to simply paint over. Covering or removing that ceiling allows you to fix the noticeable, distracting blemishes overhead and clear the path for a stylish upgrade. Scraping: Get ready to get messy. Popcorn ceilings don't get enough credit for tenacity, really. Once applied, they're not easy to remove! At best,

you'll be soaking your ceiling with water (and possibly your walls along the way) before scraping the resulting slop off with a drywall knife. At worst, the water won't get through all of your layers of paint, and you'll be breaking out the heavy machinery to sand or scrape through it all, kicking up dust. It's doable, but it's a lengthy process and not for the faint of heart. Cover it up: The easy way to fix ugly. Don't worry though you can always cover up your popcorn ceiling by installing a new ceiling over the existing one. Manufacturers like Armstrong Ceilings have many options: wood planks, metal tiles or patterned panels. How-to videos show how easy it is to install a new ceiling in as little as a day. To our modern eyes, popcorn ceilings definitely look a bit stale, but

the good news is you're not stuck with them. There are a number of options to freshen up your look and turn your ceilings into the fun, festive spaces that match your true style.

5 easy fall home updates www.albanyherald.com

The Albany Herald

(BPT) - There are so many reasons to love fall. From the brisk breeze and colorchanging leaves outdoors, to prepping for the holidays and watching football inside, there couldn't be a better time to make a few updates around your house. Consider these simple fall home updates to stylishly welcome the season. Paint to please Throughout the year, our walls can undergo stress from energetic kids, furniture moving and everyday traffic. If your home will be busy during the holidays, welcome guests with a newly painted entryway, or, freshen up your family room with a colorful accent wall. Painting is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to transform a room, so embrace the season and try a fall-inspired hue that harmonizes with your existing space like deep emerald green, royal purple or burgundy. Deep, rich paint colors are a top design trend of 2015, so the bolder the better. To achieve the best results, use FrogTape brand painter's tape to attain sharp paint lines. FrogTape is treated with PaintBlock Technology, which seals the edges of the tape, preventing paint bleed. To help incorporate the color of the accent wall into the room, add décor and accessories in similar shades throughout the area, such as new pillows in your family room or a coordinating rug in your entryway. Clever copper accents Group together the season's leaves and branches to create a unique centerpiece, or

place them throughout the house to bring life to your living areas. Crafting with fall foliage is a cinch - simply gather an assortment of thick leaves, either real or faux - and after they're rinsed and dried, spray each side of the leaf with copper paint and leave to dry for a few hours. Line these leaves up along a table runner, string them from your mantle or use them to dress up place settings. To extend the life of your metallic leaves, consider using them as place cards for holiday dinners. Easily allow guests to find their seats in shimmery style by placing printed nametags atop the leaves at each setting. Freshen up the front door Increase your home's curb appeal with a front door refresh just in time for the fall. For starters, give your door a new identity with a distinctive paint color - consider hunter green, colonial red or cognac. The color of your door introduces the world to those who live inside, so choose one that speaks to your family's style. After you've added personality to your door with paint, add a final touch with your family's monogram to the center of the door. If your door is metal, glue magnets to the back of the letters and it will easily adhere to it. Proper party prep During the fall, more time will be spent in the home's entertaining spaces to accommodate holiday soirees and family gatherings. Increase the functionality of this room - whether it's the den, family room, dining room or finished basement - and encourage guests to congregate comfortably

by adding casual seating. Spice things up with a mixture of options; choose decorative stools and poufs, or upcycle vintage chairs with new, reupholstered seats. The style of your chairs can vary, but be sure to coordinate the colors and patterns. When you're not in party mode, stow away the extra seats.

Easy, affordable home winterization ideas with big impact (BPT) - Although you may prefer to forget, last winter's subfreezing temperatures may not be an isolated occurrence. Weather experts are already discussing if El Nino and arctic air from a polar vortex will cause colder than normal winter weather throughout the country. Is your home ready to withstand the chill? Smart homeowners are taking time now to prepare their homes for the harsh weather. Winterizing not only helps maintain comfortable temperatures inside, but also helps lower your energy bill. Fortunately, some of the improvements that have the biggest impact are also easy to do and surprisingly affordable.

The average midsize U.S. home has a half mile of gaps and cracks according to www.energystar.gov. Cold air infiltrates through those spaces causing your furnace to work overtime. An easy way to combat the problem is to use Great Stuff(TM) Gaps & Cracks to fill openings around electrical outlets, plumbing pipes, doors, dryer vents and more. Sealing your home takes just a few hours whether you do it yourself or work with a contractor. Visit dowgreatstuff.com/winter ize to learn more. 2. Reverse fan blades Your ceiling fans aren't just valuable during summer - they can help reduce energy costs by circulating warm air that rises to the top of rooms. To ensure your fan is circulating the air

1. Seal gaps and cracks

correctly, you need to reverse the blades. Most modern ceiling fans have a handy switch that controls the blade direction. During the winter, set the blades to spin clockwise to help warm rooms and set to counterclockwise during summer for cooling breezes. 3. Eliminate drafty windows Have you ever felt a draft as you walked by your window? Gaps around windows are a major source of heat loss. Seal out those drafts with Great Stuff(TM) Window & Door Insulating Foam Sealant. This specially formulated low-pressure sealant is easy to apply and insulates the window without bending the frame when properly applied. Another great tip is to open the curtains

during the daylight hours on south-facing windows so the sun can help heat your home naturally. Close curtains when the sun sets to reduce the chill. 4. Install an adjustable thermostat An adjustable thermostat is an effective tool for maintaining a comfortably warm home and cutting heating costs. If you have one but don't have it set, now is the time to learn how. By adjusting the temperature down while you're sleeping or away, you can save plenty of money. In fact, by turning your thermostat back 10 to 15 degrees for 8 hours, you can save 5 to 15 percent a year on your heating bill, according to energy.gov. 5. Tune up your furnace

If meteorologists' predictions are correct, your furnace will be working hard this winter. Make sure it is working effectively and efficiently by scheduling a tune-up now. A qualified technician will check the coils and clean and lubricate important

mechanical parts. Some utility companies offer free checkups to customers, so be sure to ask about your options. In addition to a tune-up, remember to change your furnace filter once a month during the heating season to maintain proper air flow.

8 simple tips to designing safe living spaces for seniors (BPT) - The saying goes, "With age comes wisdom," but oftentimes, it also comes with a new set of physical challenges, such as limited mobility and difficulties with hearing and seeing. That's why when designing living spaces for seniors, whether in an assisted living community or in your life-long home, safety and comfort take a front seat. Certain furniture or design elements in your home that made sense before may no longer be practical. Fortunately, experts share there are many options available to address common aging factors, including increased risk of falling or declining vision. It starts by getting a little creative and designing a living environment that promotes continued independence, with form

and function Andrea Owensby, senior director of Design for Sunrise Senior Living, explains, "Ensuring your aging loved one's safety can seem overwhelming at times, but there are a lot of simple changes you can make to help prevent accidents and improve quality of life so that seniors feel more at ease in their homes." Andrea and her team suggest these tips: 1. Finesse the furniture: Create an open living space with larger pathways between furniture, which allows walkers or wheelchairs to easily maneuver the space. Strategically place larger pieces of furniture so they can be used for balance while moving throughout the room. 2. Think lightweight and sturdy: Furniture should be light enough to

easily be moved, but also needs to be heavy enough that it won't slip out from under someone when they're sitting down or standing up. Having arms on chairs, for example, assists with balance. 3. Take into account shapes: Having round furniture keeps the layout open and protects your loved one from bumping into sharp corners. Switch out round knobs for pulls and levers, which can greatly help those experiencing arthritis. 4. Create an accessible space: Place frequently used items in accessible cabinets and drawers. Keeping items at waist-height eliminates the need to reach high or bend down. This helps to reduce the risk of falls, while promoting independence by encouraging seniors to

Consider recreating the look of a previous home with fewer pieces, or add a common color scheme in a room to add flow and make the space feel larger. Incorporate accessories that are functional, such as colorful trays or boxes, to conveniently store your favorite items. Top off the room with photos to evoke special memories. Following these tips can minimize the stress of designing a safe space for your aging loved one and help make their living space still feel like home.

7. Make it practical: When choosing chairs and couches for a home, style is important but most critical is that the pieces are well-designed and purposeful. Having furniture that is too low, deep, or stiff can make it difficult to get on and off. 8. Leverage lighting options: Using lighting at the right levels for a task can make all the difference. Motion-sensor lights - especially between the bedroom and bathroom - make for easier navigation. Not only is this helping to create a safe environment, you're also being energy conscious! Ensure task areas are well lit to reduce strain on the eyes, and incorporate natural light as much as possible. Finally, a safely decorated home doesn't have to sacrifice style or personal touches.

do things on their own. Also, putting lamps, microwaves and telephones at armslength eliminates the need to reach and potentially lose balance. 5. Hide your cords: Taping down or tucking away cords eliminates the potential for tripping. The easiest way to do this is to place cords behind and under furniture or along the edges of a room. Visit your local office supply store, which likely offers cable management products. 6. Avoid scattered rugs: Although decorative, area rugs can be a tripping hazard and increase the risk of falls for seniors. Be sure when they are used you purchase rugs that are non-slip and a contrast color to the floor below so they are easier to detect by aging eyes.
